1. Firstly, can you provide more detail in relation to your parents. Where are your parents currently living? How long, if for any time, have they spent living lawfully in the UK? Are they dependent upon you financially?2. Secondly, your domestic worker will be able to apply for British nationality and citizenship on the basis of 10 years lawful residence in the UK. However, she will have to sit an English test. I regret to say that an English language test is mandatory and applies to all applicants unless they for some reason aren't able to do a test. This issue of mandatory English language test was challenged last week in the English Supreme Court and the legality of the practice of holding an English language test was upheld, subject only to specific exceptions such as someone living in a different part of the world to a test centre. Here, if your domestic worker is living in the UK, she will have to attend English language classes and pass the Proficiency in English language test.3.
